I am away this week at a conference, and I didn't think I'd get a chance to post an entry for this week, but I couldn't resist... There is a peacock strolling around the grounds of the conference center where I am staying and he is delighting most (and irritating some) of us with his shrieks and calls - throughout the night! These are the best pictures I could get at this time. (I didn't know they roosted in trees!)
I caught him through my window this morning...
I haven't seen him show off his tailfeathers yet, but I'll keep my camera ready - just in case.
UPDATE: I got him! He came back to the courtyard and fussed and ruffled and finally gave us all a peek at his full regalia! (Oh, I could have used that word today!)
He twirled and twirled for us...and then closed up his feathers and walked away.
